Thao Vining, APRN, AGACNP-BC., Top Kidney Doctor

Thao Vining, APRN, AGACNP-BC.

One of my favorite quotes is: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This motto was passed to me by one of my preceptors. This later motivated me to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner.

What I love about Nephrology is that it is a challenging but also fascinating specialty as the kidneys have many important functions within the human system. I also very much enjoy the long-term relationship with patients, the continuity of care, and the multidisciplinary environment.

As a provider, I would like my patients to know that coping with chronic illness requires strength, support and understanding of the disease. My goal for my patients is for them to be educated, so they can have a meaningful life while dealing with their chronic illnesses.
